You know, you ever heard

someone say that old expression,

"Everything happens for a reason"?

Well, I don't think that applies to me.

I mean, I spend every morning

rushing to work

trying to catch the same subway

to the same lousy job.

What's the reason for that?

See, I'm a researcher for one of the

biggest publishing houses in Chicago,

but where I really belong is in Creative.

The problem is, is my boss doesn't

know it yet, so I'm totally frustrated.

While my friend Paul keeps telling me,

"You gotta be optimistic.

You gotta be positive."

OK. OK. You know what?

Today is gonna be my lucky day.

Today is gonna be my...

- Aah!

- Oh! Wow!

- Hey, look at that, It's your lucky day,

- Did you just see that?

Oh, I've seen it a million times,

- You want it?

- No,

I don't want it, Go ahead,

You got a new briefcase,

Yeah, maybe its got a name

on it or something,

- Oh, come,,, What are you, nuts?

- What?

- You're gonna return it?

- Yeah,

Did you not just say

you needed a new one?

Yeah, when I get my raise,

Haven't you been working

there for, like, a year?

I bet Taylor doesn't even know

you work there, I'd be pissed,

- Are you pissed? I'd be pissed,

- Yeah, I'm-I'm a little pissed,

You know, come to think of it,

I've never really seen you angry before,

Henderson, you ever

seen Tom really angry?

- No,

- All right, fine, So I don't get angry,

What is that, a bad thing?

It's, you know, you keep it bottled up

and then sooner or later,

you come into work and you mow

everyone down with one of those,,,

- Um, no, He's not finished yet,

- but you can have a seat over there,

- Oh, OK,

Let me explain something

to you, Henderson,

I did not dislike your ideas,

I found them loathsome,

I hated them,

- You're dismissed,

- From your office?

Nice try,

- Good luck, You're gonna need it,,,

- He's ready to see you,

You can come in,

You know what? We should have

never let up after the Revolution!

Sit down, Sit down, Coffee?

We shouldn't have left you at toehold,

We should have driven you to the sea!

Now,,, what's this I hear

about you making threats

to spray this place with an AK-47?


Oh, oh, oh, No, That,,,

I was just making a joke,

Oh, that's funny to you?

Paul said how I never get angry,,,

And what about you

making fun of midgets?

I never made fun of midgets,

You said it'd be fun to date one

because then you could rest

your beer on her head,

No, No, I never said anything like that,

Apparently Henderson thinks you did,

Now I've got a good sense of humor,

but that's just plain sick,

- But, sir, I didn't say,,,

- Audrey?

- Which file did I ask you for?

- Uh, the Platt file?

- John Platt, Not Sam Platt,

- I'm sorry, I guess I didn't think that,,,
